Title (EN) RHYTHM INDICATING EXERCISERS
(FR) DISPOSITIFS D"EXERCICE AVEC INDICATION DU RYTHME
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A rhythm indicating exercising device in the form of a generally tubular member (10) having a preferably metallic mass or slug (18) disposed freely slidable in the interior of the tubular member, each end of the tubular member being provided with an arresting member (14) or end closure (74, 90) preventing the mass or slug (18) from escaping from the tubular member. In use, one tubular member (10) is grasped in one hand or, preferably, a pair of tubular members are held one in each hand of a person while walking and more particularly while engaged in aggressive exercise walking, that is while walking at a fast pace with extensive swinging of the arms back and forth. At the end of each forward and backward stroke of the arm, the mass or slug (18) is forcibly propelled by inertia within the tubular member and caused to strike the corresponding arresting member (14) or end closure (74, 90), thus producing an impact knocking sound helping the walker to maintain an effective rhythm and providing beneficial advantages in indicating proper exercising of the arms in addition to the legs.
(FR)Un dispositif d"exercice indiquant le rythme se presente sous la forme d"un organe tubulaire (10) ayant une masse metallique (18) disposee librement et coulissant a l"interieur de l"organe tubulaire, chaque extremite de l"organe tubulaire etant pourvue d"un organe d"arret (14) ou d"une fermeture d"extremite (74, 90) empechant la masse (18) de s"echapper de l"organe tubulaire. En utilisation, un organe tubulaire (10) est serre dans une main ou, de preference, une paire d"organes tubulaires sont pris chacun dans une main par une personne qui marche et plus particulierement qui effectue un exercice de marche agressive, c"est-a-dire qui marche a une allure rapide avec balancement ample des bras en avant et en arriere. A l"extremite de chaque course avant et arriere du bras, la masse (18) est propulsee par inertie dans l"organe tubulaire et frappe l"organe d"arret(14) ou la fermeture extreme (74, 90) correspondante, produisant ainsi un impact sonore qui aide le marcheur a maintenir un rythme efficace, et procurant des avantages au marcheur en lui indiquant qu"il exerce correctement ses bras en meme temps que ses jambes.
